wish for an answer, a message of hope
In this world, where hatred must cease
The hope that we long for, lies deep in the heart
Wherever live children of peace.
We ask for our freedom in safety and love
While darkness and hunger increase
But all of our problems would soon disappear
If we become children of peace.
There is no separation between you and I
We are part of the same family
Now we stand in the dawn
Of a new age of love
And the chance to bring earth it's harmony
So smile on your brothers
No strangers are we
Together we'll watch love increase
We'll change what we've been
And find heaven within
As we become children of peace.
When we live for each moment
And let our love flow
The truth is so easy to see
We can all join together
Create a new world
Become the light
We're meant to be.
This grandeur is waiting
For us to begin
To realize our heart holds the keys
We'll unlock the joy that we've hidden away
As we become children of peace
As we become children ...
Let go of the fear, let go of the past
Trust in your own Light with ease
There's nothing to do except be who we are
For we are the children of peace
Forever, we're children of peace.

Posters of "Peace for our Children" hang in homes,
offices, schools and government buildings across America and every
continent of the world. California Congressman Christopher Cox felt it
was a visual image which should also be hung at the South Pole.
.In 1994 it was given to both the American and Vostok
(Russian) Pole Stations in Antartica at the South Pole! In "Peace for
our Children" people are invited to see an image of balance, harmony
and peacefulness. It makes a visual statement for people everywhere who
believe in the possibility of a sustainable peace for our children and
our children's, children's children. Because the rich symbolism of art
reaches beyond language barriers, it provides a universal language to
help form new patterns of thought. At this time Penny McManigal
believes artists are urgently being called upon to share their images
of hope for a peaceful planet which celebrates life's diversities and
honors our vast cultural, mythological and personal heritages.
Parents are encouraged to hang this image in their
homes as a reminder of their sacred responsibilities to provide for
their children's safety, happiness and well being.
"Peace for our Children" is available as a Limited
Edition of 325, as 21"x31" posters and notecards. The artist shares
proceeds of sales with nonprofit organizations.
